Meanwhile in another count, it is alleged that on dates unknown but between January 1 and June 30, 2012 she dishonestly and with false pretense purported to have had a shorthand typewriting certificate in order to be employed as a typist at the Judiciary.

Mr. Saime said by virtue of her employment, Mponda received a total salary of K60, 133 and a settling in allowance of K4, 628.57 from government.
